Driver Escapes Being Crushed By Giant Boulder

A driver in Taiwan has had a lucky escape after a huge boulder crashed down a mountainside missing his car by a few feet.

The heart-stopping moment was caught on a camera mounted to the dashboard of a vehicle following a few metres behind.

The video shows the car in front come to a sudden stop as the mountainside appears to explode before a boulder the size of a small house tumbles into the road beside the car.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

In 2009 at least 63 Taiwanese villagers were buried alive by mudslides triggered by typhoon Morakot which ravaged the country.
